Thom Rutledge & the good Dr. Allen Berger are proud to announce that they know what a podcast is…and they even have one.
Courage is to fear as light is to darkness.
The dark never goes away.
We turn on the light.
PSYCHOTHERAPIST AUTHOR SPEAKER CONSULTANT
I have discovered something more important to me than happiness: self-respect. Even on a bad day, a day when I am far from being my own biggest fan, my integrity can remain intact. That is the ultimate measure of myself, at the end of a day, and ultimately at the end of my life. It's not about what happens to me; it is always about how I respond. It's not about how I am treated; it's about what I choose to do with whatever that is. - Thom

A NOTE FROM THOM
ABOUT SPEAKING, WORKSHOPS & TRAININGS
I have always found it difficult to describe what I do with any presentation. I can say this with certainty: I have never given the exact same speech or workshop more than one time. The material I work with, even that I've worked with for many years, remains fresh to me because I am forever re-thinking/revising what has gone before. As corny as it sounds, this is the truth: I continue to learn so much from my audiences and workshop participants because when I work, I am in a collborative place. It is not at all unusual for me to change something in my presentation because of a point a participant makes that had not occurred to me. I am a big fan of curiosity and when it comes to the practice of collaborative learning, sometimes I am going to have an excellent response to a question and sometimes the best response is going to come from a program participant.
All of this to say, if you are interested in hiring me to bring my dog-n-pony show to your organization or event, know that the collaboration begins you letting me know more specifically what you are wanting for your group. Whatever we decide to call the presentation, more than anything I want to do my best to respond to your audience's specific needs. Of course we are not get it right for every single individual, but we sure as hell can make a presentation more relevant with genuine curiosity and interaction.
If you have any questions at all and/or you just want us to get started with setting up an event, let me hear from you. My preferred way to communicate is email but my wife has taught me that some people are telephone people --- so if prefer to talk voice to voice, give me your phone # and I will be glad to call you.
Thank you for your intersted in my work.
